Do you have a laptop or pc but no webcam? Or Is your webcam not up to scratch? Do you have an Xbox 360? Then there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Thanks to bradleyduncan06 who created an easy to follow YouTube video, shows you how to mod your PC to allow it to accept the Kinect as your new webcam.

I did say easy to follow, but I would also like to mention that there are some modifications that you may not be completely comfortable performing these tasks. My advice would be to watch the 7 minute video once or twice before you start to perform the changes; just to give you an idea of which processes are required.

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
